Eight Witnesses.




A cold war suspense drama costarring Dennis Price and Peggy Ann Garner. This is a TV movie filmed in West Germany by a German production company, and with a mostly German supporting cast. The opening and closing scenes appear to have been shot separately and added later, possibly for its US release. The most interesting aspect of this film is the peculiar nature of its production.

Directed by Lawrence Huntington
Released in 1954

CAST NOTE: Dennis Price is probably best known for starring in the black comedy, "Kind Hearts and Coronets," in which Alec Guinness plays eight different characters.


Run time 60 minutes 12 seconds
Producer Gene Martel
Production Company Bavaria-Filmkunst
Audio/Visual sound, B&W

Subject: A Cold War Film Noir
This little film is straight from the Cold War era and it's all about a missing formula and a murdered scientist fleeing from behind the "Iron Curtain". Shot on location in Bavaria, it has an authentic feel to it. The film is shot in such a way that all of the English dialogue could have been easily dubbed into German and probably was. Peggy Ann Garner was the big American star in the picture and Dennis Price the stolid British co-star, such as they are. It's interesting but obvious. Tacked on beginning and ending add nothing to the picture. Take it or leave. Picture quality O.K. but you can tell it's a TV Print. Sound isn't bad.
